A Surprise hit
Nicholas from Dublin, 09 Feb 2012
I was not expectiong much from this film which meant it surprised me when I found myself being taken in by the story.
The premise is verging on reality and believable
Bradley Cooper is very well cast and I found myself routing for him throught the film which is fast paced and slick.
Ideal film if you are looking for a bit of escapism

Pleaseantly surprised with this film as wasn't overly enamoured with the trailer or blurb. Storyline was quick and realistic, you actually felt apart of the madness of this wonder drug. Good performances all round, particularly De Niro. The ending was quite quick and could have gone into it more but otherwise definitely worth a view.
Nothing else to do?

The book I only read half of it, its nearly a 4, if you like the book your'll like the movie. Like the book a good idea not reaching it's full potential and the movie unfortunately is not as good as the book. a man's movie (according to thjis male reviewer)

I have to say I was quite surprised I really enjoyed this movie. Action from the start, there is no lul in the storyline it is fast paced and had me gripped in the first 5 minutes.
Something different in the world of same old same old!
Limitless was limited

From the outset the writing was on the wall for this one. The plot was predictable and intermingled with a weak sub plot that didn't add to the movie at all. Watch it if there's nothing else available.
